|It was quite hot, actually too much for me.|
|We found the main cathedral is imposing and has a stunning pattern all around.|
|The famous Ponte Vecchio bridge and its jewelry shops hanging out over the river.|
|The famous Michelangelo's David is a common sight over the city.|
|Inside the rustic-looking Palazzo Vecchio, we were surprised to discover a multitude of finely decorated rooms. |
I was especially amazed by the ceilings.
|The panorama from the Duomo is worth the climb in narrow staircases built between |
the outside walls and the inside wall of the cupola.
|View of the cupola dominating the city, from the top of the bell tower.|
|Ice-cream was our daily treat.|
|I discovered that pasta in Italy are often really thick - I loved it!|
